R kids me a lot about making lists. I am a big list maker…. granted there have been numerous times that I have left the house for the grocery store to find myself without a list when I pull into the parking lot. Many times I make a list and then never see it again. I think sometimes it just helps to write it down… whether or not I ever look at the list again! Writing helps us remember things…. which is one of the reasons I like to take notes during church/Bible studies. I have a book that I keep at home that I make a daily list in, I write down important things to remember, things that need to be done. Many times at the end of the day I realize that I have done much more than what I had written down. And then there are the days when I hardly make a dent in my list at all. Sometimes life is just more important than a list. Here is my list for today. I’d love to get to a point where my ‘cleaning’ was more scheduled. I think it would help keep the house cleaner.

Wash/dry/fold towels- X
Wash/dry/fold Luke’s clothes-
De-clutter (mail/papers/notes/junk) counter tops in kitchen-
Work on bathroom floor- X
Work on next weeks menu-X
Email about Sunday-X
Load dishes from dinner- X
Pay online bills- X
Sweep kitchen floor-
Wipe down mirrors and counters in bathrooms-

Making lists does not make you organized. If it did…. I would be organized and I am definitely not. It does, however, make me feel a little less chaotic.

I will come back and edit what I have gotten done later. It’s definitely time for us (Luke and I) to get out of the house. He needs to run off some energy! Ahhhhh!
